Sadhguru says, in many ways, old age can be a great blessing because the whole experience of life is behind you.

萨古鲁谈到,从很多方面看,人上了岁数其实是极大的福气,因为人生的全部经历已是过往。

 

Sadhguru: Old age need not be misery. In many ways, old age can be a great blessing because the whole experience of life is behind you. When you were a child everything was beautiful, but you were eager to grow up because you want to experience life. When you became youthful, your intelligence got hijacked by your hormones. Whatever you did, knowingly or unknowingly, it just pushed you in that direction. Very few people are capable of raising their intelligence beyond the hormonal hijack and looking at life with clarity. All others are trapped in it.

萨古鲁:年老并不意味着悲惨,从许多方面来看,年老是种福气,因为人生的全部经历已成为过往。当你还是个小孩,所有事物在你眼中都很美好,但那时你却渴望快快长大,因为你向往着体验人生。之后你成长到青年时期,你的智力就像是被荷尔蒙绑架了。无论你做着什么,不知不觉中,你都是被荷尔蒙驱使着。几乎没有人能超越荷尔蒙的驱使,而用清晰的视角看待生活。绝大多数人都受困于其中。

 

When you come to old age, all the longings are over, a whole experience of life is behind you and you are once again childlike, but you have the wisdom of experience of life. It can be a very fruitful and wonderful part of your life, but unfortunately most human beings suffer their old age simply because they don’t take care of their rejuvenation process properly. In ancient times in India, old age meant Vanaprastha ashrama, where the old couple went back into the forest and lived there joyfully. But today, old age means “hospital ashrama.”

当你老了,所有的欲望都会消失,人生的全部经历都是过往,而你又一次成为一个孩童,只是你有了历经人生后的智慧。这其实正是人生充实而美好的阶段,可不幸的是,由于大多数人没有照顾好身体的复原过程,他们会觉得年老是种受罪。在印度的远古时代,年老的意思是"Vanaprastha ashrama(森林静修所)",老年夫妇会相伴去到森林里并快乐地在那里生活。但现在,年老的意思是“医院静修所”。

 

If you take care of your rejuvenation process well, old age can be a miraculous part of your life, because it is invaluable to have a whole life’s experience behind you and to be once again childlike.

如果你能够照顾好身体的复原过程,老年时期可以成就你人生中的一段奇迹,因为你不仅拥有全部生活经历,并且你又一次回归了孩子的纯真,能同时拥有这二者是无价的。

 

Everything is over, but very few old people can even smile, unfortunately. This is because the only thing that they knew in their life was the physical body. Once the body begins to recede, they become despondent. It might not have become diseased, no big cancer need to have come, but in every step that you take, age is telling you this is not forever. If you establish yourself in other dimensions of experience, the body becomes an easy thing to handle. Old age and even death can be a joyful experience. 

一切都已经过去了,但不幸的是,很少有老人甚至能展开笑容。这是因为在他们的一生中,他们唯一了解的就是他们的肉身。一旦身体机能开始减退,他们会变得沮丧。即使没有病痛,无需出现癌症那样的大病,随着时间的流逝,日益增长的年龄也会提醒着人们总有一天生命会终结。但如果你能确立好其他维度的体验,你就能够轻松掌控自己的身体。年老甚至死亡都可以是一个快乐的经历。

 

Love&Grace,

Sadhguru

爱与恩典
